Finding space to grow your own food in the city is hard enough but imagine trying to find somewhere big enough to establish an entire farm - that’s a whole different story. But after years of searching for the perfect plot, Pocket City Farms have won the jackpot.

Pocket City are setting out to transform neglected city spaces, from spare plots to rooftops, into places where fresh produce can be grown so that city dwellers can enjoy (super) local produce and feel good knowing where it came from.
